The Clintons: The Same Old Tricks

Almost three years ago, I wrote that Hillary Clinton,
has taken the opportunities that fell into her lap, e.g., her playboy husband became Governor of Arkansas and then President, and ably used them to advantage, e.g., a Senate seat, almost the Presidency, and now SecState. As the First Lady of Arkansas, she played the role required of her: she laundered bribes for her husband. That is what Whitewater was about. That was her role at the Rose Law Firm: she would collect and launder the payoffs. She "made" a fortune in cattle futures, right? OK, when will you pay me for that bridge? (Note: The GOP was too stupid to explain the Whitewater affair, and accepted the media line that it was "too complicated" for the public to understand. My Foreign Service friends and I who had spent years in places where that was the role of the First Lady figured it out instantly.)
It, therefore, came as no surprise to see Whitewater on steroids happen, again. This time, however, we see Bill Clinton acting as the bag man. While his wife, Hillary, served as SecState, Ex-POTUS Bill, collected huge sums for speeches from a variety of foreign organizations, all with the rubber-stamp OK of the State ethics people. The Clinton marriage is a business and political partnership unlike any other we have seen in recent American politics. It is the American version of the Putin-Medvedev back-and-forth. It also comes as no surprise to see the muted reaction from most of the MSM.

In a further development underlining how the Clinton machine operates above the law, or off-the-books, we now see that the pant-suited SecState had her own very private email server installed at her house. She used this system to send and receive emails, apparently including official ones, and never bothered to use a State email address. This was a blatant attempt to avoid FOIA by hiding her correspondence from official records, and, most important, to hide her disastrous actions and inactions on major events--e.g., Libya, Egypt, Benghazi, Fast and Furious--and a violation of all sorts of laws and regulations on the security of communications.

This is a SecState with zero accomplishments except hiding that she has zero accomplishments.

EVEN the otherwise docile and compliant NY Times noted that,
As State Department lawyers sifted last summer through a new batch of documents related to the Benghazi attacks, they repeatedly saw something that caught their attention: emails sent to and from a personal account for Hillary Rodham Clinton
The lawyers, according to current and former State Department officials, were working to respond to a request from a specially appointed House committee investigating the 2012 attacks in Libya. But they noticed that among the 15,000 documents they examined, there were no emails to or from an official departmental account for Mrs. Clinton.
Folks, this is a big deal. Any Foreign Service or Civil Service Officer who did anything similar would have run afoul immediately of the Department of State Security guys. Career termination and even criminal charges would have been very real possibilities. That Hillary Clinton was able to get away with this for the duration of her tenure is an outrage. Heads need to roll at State over this, and Hillary should give up her White House ambitions--yeah, right . . .

Hillary Clinton is a crook. There, I've said it. She is a crook. To conduct her crookedness, she relies on the compliance of a tight circle of sycophants, low information supporters, and the cowardly and complicit media.

  1. There are sooo many questions about this that have not yet been answered much less asked that it is beyond belief. From a technical standpoint, the availability and responsiveness of a mail server in a home in New York to someone working in Washington would have been ridiculously slow. Did she have some type of VPN setup for her? How did she access this email, via an unencrypted internet connection? Who set that up? Who authorized it? Who paid for it? Did anyone recommend against all this? It certainly did not go unnoticed among the IRM staff as well as DS, M, etc... Did no one make a recommendation against it? Like you said, there are heads that should roll at HST.

  7. The big risk is that the more crimes come out about members of this Administration, the they will fight to keep power, just to keep themselves out of jail.

    The deeper political meaning of these revelations is that the Deeper Democrat Party doesn't think she can win in 2016. They want to clear her corpse off the battlefield so another contender can be their champion.

    1. It is an indictment of the Democrat party that they have to maintain the lawlessness of their current president long enough to nominate and elect the crookedness of Hillary and Clinton inc. Additionally, it is an indictment of so much of the MSM who are aiding and abetting these two factions of organized corruption. Unfortunately, it is also an indictment of over half the voting population that is responsible for these criminals ever getting near the levers of power.

  10. probably a silly hypothetical, but if the GOP swept aside the idiotic vestiges of the filibuster and passed an official declaration of war with Iran, would Obamistas get in trouble for continuing their dealings with Iran?

Also, dear Ayatollah, I know we've had a wonderful interplay in these letters, so I have to ask you something very serious. Can you give me pointers on canceling elections? I know you've had a lot of success with that and I'm facing a tough deadline in 2016."

  13. Aren't we missing the really important fact. The Hillary e-mail kerfuffle was started by the NYTimes. We know, even if the NYTimes won't admit it, that the NYTimes doesn't print anything that is not the Official Party Line (i.e. what the White House and the DNC leadership decree is the Official Party Line). I.e. if the OPL is that Hillary is the Next President and the election is only a trivial formality, the NYTimes would not be bombing Hillary.

    The question is who ordered the hit on Hillary, and why did they order it?

    My conjecture is that Obama (a/k/a Valerie Jarret) ordered the hit because [s]he is afraid that Hillary will, in order to protect her relationship with big donors and her electability, begin to undermine him, especially on the Iran Nuclear Cave In. Obama also wants to make sure there is enough time for a Democrat presidential candidate who demonstrates fealty to Obama and his Greatness, to arise before Hillary sews up the nomination.

  14. There are hard feelings going back a long time on both sides first/ But the timing of this suggests something different to me. There was a shocker in Chicago two weeks ago: Rahm Emanuel got forced into a run off by a nobody in an election in which Obama's endorsement didn't help raise turnout. With something like 18% of the voters now saying they are undecided, Rahm could lose. This is despite being able to outspend his opponents by something like 7 or 8 to 1.

    Like Rahm, Hillary has a personality that grates on most people. Like him, she has also been too well known for too long to be able to "rebrand" herself no matter how many slick ads she runs. The party leaders accepted her as Bill's bagman, but they rejected her as the face of the party in 2008 (The superdelegates broke the dead heat after the primaries/caucus in Obama's favor.) If anything she has gotten worse, not better, with age. They don't want her as face of the party because they see disaster all the way down the ticket in 2016 with her in the lead role. She has little appeal to the low info voters they have come to rely on.

    Likeability is a huge factor in American politics. Bill Clinton used his to overcome a lot. The shrewder Democrats know a key factor in why they lost in 2000 and 2004 was because neither Gore or Kerry are very likable people. I've never watch Kerry in person but I have watched Gore work a select crowd of around 75. He was awful. No charm and a massive sense of entitlement. Hillary's sense of entitlement is even worse.

  15. So how did we ever get from here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_WlBpQWmubc to here, where we are today, on an edge? Lotta' wrong turns, and not very bright people, on top, who seemed to be called bright, but lacking in all that's needed, the same as the master "patriot" of America-infamous hussein, the master capable-"one"-even the world champion negotiator with the devil-not. Ha, ha, ha.

    ”And saw among the simple, I perceived among the youths, A young man devoid of understanding,” -Proverbs 7:7

    Fulbright scholars, anyone? Ha, sure.....

    And next, shrillary? All fakes, frauds.

    Anon is right of course, "Likeability is a huge factor in American politics." That puts the odds pretty low for "Reason and judgment are the qualities of a leader." of Tacitus, or this knowledge, not of a Fulbright scholar, let alone a Havaad scholar: ”To give prudence to the simple, To the young man knowledge and discretion” -Proverbs 1:4 Our current national predicament is summed up pretty well, IMO, by this: "HALF THE WORLD IS COMPOSED OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY AND CAN’T, AND THE OTHER HALF WHO HAVE NOTHING TO SAY AND KEEP ON SAYING IT." — Robert Frost At least one other man than our stunningly brave founding treasonous heroes spoke up well, in this: "The best environment for man is the environment of liberty." - former President of the Czech Republic, Vaclav Klaus

    Mad illustrates a common problem, in the system, people that know aren't where they should be, and people who know nothing or deceit, also in the wrong places.

    And Norway's Nobel chair gets demoted, (never before happened, couple days ago) because of hussein, Ha, way tooooooo late. Hussein probably was upstairs worshipping the medal, while our decent and good people were being denied aid while being murdered, no doubt hussein telling highly competent shrillary to handle it! Ha, Ha.

    And the low information voter, absent without leave, as is his wont, these times.

    2. Hey Arkie, nice seein' ya there again. Good comments, could be valid, too, re millennials, which are most of 'em highly deceived by a touchy feely good feelin's.

      I haven't caught up with the voter weakness areas, but seems to me too many supposedly intelligent mature people didn't vote, in various stages of disgust, and lostness.

      And of the voters, there is the distillation column of fractionated various levels of peoples, like the beginners, the wymens, either singles or marrieds with family, the elderly (ahem) mature folk, plus the cemetery residents, and the duplicate residents, and any other fractions that digital processors can distill off.

      And of course, there is the wholly bought and sold MSM the handmaiden of trouble, not truth, as in this little problem:
      http://no-pasaran.blogspot.com/2015/03/the-main-rules-of-mainstream-media-herd.html

      Between confusion and disgust, I kinda suspect it's the non voter that needs a shove, if they truly do have some wisdom of age, decently beyond 25, and don't believe iran is just another moral equivalent poor little nation, that only has centuries of oil (for its own needs), and not one iota of need for U2 power, ever, except for the bombs to bring on the Mahdi, and extinction of all those near neighbors, of all persuasions, it wishes to eliminate or intimidate, eh? Ya know, Jews, sunnis, Europeans, eventually us, etc....... And the principle of mo, "war is deceit" "allah is the best of deceivers", ad nauseum......is the fundamental of fraud in treaties of muslims, never to be trusted, ever. It's in their books, as a fundamental principle.

  16. Diplomad,

    Thanks for the most authoritative article on this subject so far. It clears the air of lot of disinformation being put out by Media Matters and Clinton toadies.

    Next question is why did the NY Times break this story? This story is a vicious smear of the presumptive Democratic Presidential nominee. It happened just weeks before Hillary's planned announcement to run. It appears to be designed to sabotage her campaign. It is totally out of character with the Times' policy. The Times can normally be counted on to accurately represent the DNC's and administration's policy.

    Is this just bad blood between the Clintons and Obama? Does the DNC think Hillary can't win the election? Is there more dirt out there that might jeopardize her chances? Does the administration want another candidate?

    I suspect there is more to come. The liberal press has not avoided the subject as might be expected.
